My personal vision statement and reading the purpose driven life has helped clear all the cobwebs in my mind. I’ve always strove the be something great, something special. Once you realize you’re purpose and are in tune with your vision then you realize you will be great if you follow your vision and stick to the mission. It takes discipline to do the every day grind towards achieving your goals. Today’s b90x instantly made me think of Rocky Balboa, in the movie he had to grind daily and after many conservative days of putting in the work he achieved his goal.
I’ve mostly stopped comparing myself to others, the one exception that is fresh in my mind is one of my tennis teams… We have 5+ guys that can play line one, and well lets just say rotation is not fairly distributed so I tend to find myself comparing my game to others… It is funny though since going through alpha class I have been caring about it less, hitting out on the ball more and challenging shitty calls more frequently. Alpha class + doing B90X again + some personal growth things I’m doing on my own are really starting to take form as I keep on improving and striving for that final form.
I am still comparing my discipline to others I look up to. Still lacking but still making progress at the same time. Also comparing myself to others in my space or spaces entering to see if I’m lacking in communication, production,research.
I keep comparing myself to some of the alpha cohort members and how I’m not keeping up with them. They put in the work and deserve the glory yet im still jealous AF. Its funny how I strive to do better but then I mentally break when it comes time to do the work. I make excuses for myself like (my computer is too slow to edit videos, im tired, if i make this public everyone will think im LAME, SAD, AND CRAZY). I think finding out what your made of is the hardest thing to do, but is clearly the only way I can become the person on want to be.
I compare myself to many. My coworkers for example, this has not always been a good thing. I have trouble cutting newer ones and more senior ones slack for errors they make. This can and has caused an inflated sense of ego some times. I try to keep a sharp eye on this.
I as see other early adopters and wish I had jumped in at $200 a coin, when I first heard of BTC. I see the wealth they have accumulate for themselves, and wish the same for my family. This is a good thing most of the time, it gives me drive to keep DCA as the price falls. Although, it causes issues with me FOMOing and not being disciplined in my purchases.
I also have some naccissim as well, this something I fight with. Ego is problematic and can drive good people away. Plus if left on checked, will cause me to create drama for myself.
This was a great video, thank you Peter.
I struggle with comparing myself to other moms. Funny how I don’t care about what others think about all the other things I do but that mom thing really gets me. I’m grateful for my family when I start to get down on myself because I don’t think I’m measuring up to being the ideal mom or wife that I’m comparing myself too, they remind me that most moms don’t build businesses, homeschool their kids and take care of a disabled husband while providing for the family. I’m learning that it’s ok that I’m not a perfect mom but keep doing my best everyday and everything will work out.
I’ve never been one to compare myself to others. I’ve always marched to the beat of my own drum. Do whatever makes me happy. I do tend to over extend myself wanting to help others more than I actually have time to. Helping others makes me happy. But it takes time away from the things I need to get done to improve myself.
well, I think I do this out of habit, always seeing myself as less or more than someone else
I also project my own values and metrics regarding better or worse when I rate myself against others
the problem is that it’s not very helpful, just gives me some negative feelings and probably also makes me avoid people and not getting to know them (since I relate to them as either from a superior position or an inferior position)
I wouldn’t say that I live my life according to the perceptions of others (this is a bit extreme), but I would say that I am influenced by the perceptions of others. I tend to measure my worth based on things that are outside of my control, which is not helpful.
I felt like I wasn’t living for my mission and the perception of others for some odd reason. my Ego was getting the best of me which was hard to control until I seen this video. This video gave me a reality check and I took 1 step to self-reflect and made some adjustments. Great vid Peter. This was definitely on point.
